The Black Friday sales season is here! The prices shown below are the best available now, though you may need to buy quickly as some deals will sell out.
Amazon’s early Black Friday sale continues with another excellent OnePlus discount. Earlier this week, the retailer slashed £150 off the OnePlus 8 Pro, which is its largest discount ever on that model (you can still get the deal now, by the way).
Now, another noteworthy discount arrives on the top-spec OnePlus Nord with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage that drops the price to £419 from £469. This is once again Amazon’s lowest price ever on the Nord 12GB/256GB, and we’re currently not seeing other retailers mirror this price.
At £469 it’s undoubtedly a great deal that adds even more value for money to an already low asking price for everything that the Nord packs.
The Nord is a near-flagship handset. It’s so impressive our deputy editor Dominic Preston called it “the best mid-range phone in the world right now” in his full five-star review.
The OnPlus Nord eschews the extra nice-to-haves available in its more premium phones (like the OnePlus 8 Pro and 8T), but this keeps prices nice and low.
So what exactly is missing? First, unlike the OnePlus 8 range, the Nord has a plastic chassis instead of a metal one, but that’s barely noticeable.
The Nord also offers a flat display instead of a curved one. But you do get a best-in-class AMOLED Full HD+ display that’s better than some premium flagships out there.
The biggest difference of course is you get a Snapdragron 765G chipset, instead of the top-tier Snapdragon 865 – but that would only matter if you’re playing the most demanding mobile games.
Amazon’s discount arrives after OnePlus’s latest budget releases in the Nord series: the Nord N10 5G and Nord N100, which cost £329 and £179 respectively. The cheaper Nord phones offer less powerful processors and more modest displays than the Nord.
